It is this great Frank Butler design which has made Catalina one of the leading pioneers of sailboat design, as well as comfort. She is very easy to single hand. Below is a carefully planned and amazingly spacious interior. There are berths for seven, including the large aft double berth. Forward is a comfortable double cabin, with shelving and a large overhead hatch. Just aft is a generous sized head with molded shower pan. The aft galley is easy to use with a top loading ice box and large double stainless steel sinks. The galley is tucked away along the port side, away from traffic, yet open to the main salon for cruising conversation. The navigation station is like those found on a much larger yacht, providing storage for charts and navigation equipment. The electrical panel and space for added electronics are directly above the navigation station. Storage space on board the 30 is abundant and well planned. Forward, opposite the head is a large hanging locker and chest of drawers. Beneath all seats and berths are easily accessible compartments for gear and supplies.
An efficient fin keel and large spade rudder combined with a long horizontal skeg insure control and tracking ability under sail or power. The deck provide security for the crew with molded-in nonskid, high cockpit coamings, double life lines and pulpits. The anchor locker is recessed into the foredeck.
Sail the 1985 Catalina 30 and discover the unique blend of comfort and performance that make the Catalina 30 an outstanding boat.
Although the price of the boat is firm, there could be 10k of value that can be added to the boat by a buyer who is willing to invest some sweat equity in improving the boats cosmetics. A low hr diesel engine and sails in very good condition are two big ticket items typically not found in a 30 ft boat at this price point. Invest in your future and sail her away today!
